Yes, my naturopath wants to do chelation once the candida protocol is finished. Something taken by mouth. I also wonder if leaky gut (I've had candida for a very long time) creates problems for the SMP. I'll look into the sauerkraut idea. I know I don't have the folic acid problem Freddd has; I recently started juicing regularly, with an emphasis on dark leafy greens, and nothing has changed. Can I run a test by taking a dose of dibencozide one day and B12 Infusion the next, and see what happens? Or is it better to stop the SMP and jump fully into Freddd's? I thought I might switch over during the summer, so I've already bought all of the supplements. And in terms of understand what is doing what, is it better to wait until I've done the chelation, before changing protocols? EDIT: I started juicing on Thursday (4 cups). On Friday I noticed tight muscles. On Saturday I drank 6 cups of juice, and that night I couldn't sleep on my side because the pressure on my shoulder joints was too much. I also couldn't turn my head to one side. This has never happened before. Yesterday, Sunday, I drank 3 cups of juice and the muscle cramping is less, but now I have a runny nose and mild sore throat. I'm juicing swiss chard, curly kale, zucchini, fennel, parsley, cooked beet, carrot, apple, and red grapes.
